Yogi's Playground Postcard

“Yogi's Playground” Postcard

H. S. Crocker Co., Inc.
ca. 1970

The “Yogi’s Playground” postcard depicts what is now Joshua Tree’s Black Rock Campground. Built in 1970, the campground featured popular children’s cartoon characters and offered a variety of activities such as horseback riding, tennis, swimming, a playground, and the “Cindy’s Yum Yum Shack” general store. Although the pool and playground are gone, the current campground design and many of the buildings still reflect the Jellystone era.
